Sorry about that. 
What did Klein do then - they are both credited for the half page, 
in the Inducks.

I don't have the latter with me, so i can't compare right now.

I thoyght about the possiblity of the fan who originally bought the
having showed it to either one of the makers? - I agree that it looks
The 10-pagers had no title at that time - oops, I guess I don't know 
my Barks as good as I should at this time...

You're entitled to have that opinion :-)

About the code - what code would the story have had - and did another

I do hope the danish publisher has been reasonable enough to call it Glade
Jul, as that's our version of Silent night/Stlle nacht (Gruber). Is it a

We do know about this publication system in Scandinavia, the same issues
comes out but some days apart, first in sweden, on friday (though supposed
to be on stands following monday?), then in Norway on tuesday and in
denmark on thursday. I was annoyed that i didn't get my subscriber's issue

possible that some shops have it on stands now, but it's not something the
companies like, that the sellers put their mag's on the stands before
publication date. It can cause you to be erased of the seller's list, if i
understood right.
